* In ''Literature/{{Persuasion}}'', Anne tries to ask Admiral Croft if Wentworth seemed upset in his letter about Louisa and Benwick's sudden marriage, since they'd had every appearance of being ready to marry themselves. Croft replies that Wentworth didn't mention being upset, and even after Anne tries to clarify that she means the ''tone'' of the letter doesn't really understand what she's getting at. (It doesn't help that he knows Wentworth as his straightforward brother-in-law, whereas Anne has been repeatedly subjected to his innocuous, DoubleMeaning remarks about how upset he was over their broken engagement.)

* Most forms of sign language used by Deaf people[[labelnote:*]]There are forms of sign language not intended for use by the deaf. They've been created for use in environments where normal speech doesn't work.[[/labelnote]] involve the use of facial expressions to convey subtleties of meaning, to the point where specific expressions have specific meanings. So much so that one of the biggest frustrations that many deaf people have when dealing with hearing people is that they are not expressive enough to understand them.

* In ''{{Eyeshield21}}'', Komusubi only speaks in "Powerful-ese", the language of powerful men. Which means the only members of the main cast who understand him are his [[SempaiKohai Sempai]] Kurita - and, presumably due to RuleOfFunny, [[TeamMom Mamori]]. This is important at one point in the story, when Kurita doubts his strength so much that he can no longer understand Komusubi.

** Now, for added confusion, consider the implications when a Deaf person is trying to communicate (either with no sign-language interpreter, or with a sign-language interpreter '''not''' familiar Autistic communication difficulties) with an Autistic person. When this happens, it's [[DudeNotFunny not recommended]] to PassThePopcorn.

* Towards the end of ''PrideAndPrejudice'', Mrs. Bennet is trying to get Jane and Mr. Bingley alone and keeps winking at her other daughters to get them to leave. Elizabeth just ignores this, but finally Kitty asks explicitly why her mother keeps winking at her. Mrs. Bennet denies everything.

* Near the beginning of ''Literature/WolfHall'', Thomas Cromwell laments that he has no way to signal to Wolsey that he shouldn't be ripping Thomas Boleyn a new one; somehow there's no discreet Italian hand signal for "Back off, the king is fucking his daughter."

* In an early episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', Data's long lost brother Lore is found and assembled. It quickly becomes evident that every time he lies, he has a facial tic so horrid that you fear he's having a seizure. Yet no member of the crew ever notices or comments on this. In the end, he actually has to point this out, [[ViewersAreMorons just in case the audience didn't figure it out.]]
